1 Solano College Sports Medicine Program Mission: Our mission is to care for and treat all in-season (as described by CCCAA), Solano College Athletes, and their athletic injuries. Solano College Sports Medicine will also assist in medical referral for other non-athletic injuries.

3 Sports Medicine Hours ( ) Due to a loss of overtime, and an administrative directive that holidays, and overtime be avoided by full time staff. New policies are going into effect as follows: our hours must change to reflect these requests. * Each in-season sport must supply the sports medicine department with an ACCURATE season practice, game, departure schedule and an accurate player roster (red shirts included and marked). *Fall sports will need to supply hours by Aug 17 th 2014, Winter sports by Oct. 12 th 2014, and Spring sports by Jan. 15 th, *Changes must be submitted a minimum of 7 days prior to the change. This schedule will be complied to create the athletic training room hours and game coverage. The head AT,C will work 5 days per week, 8 hours per day, therefore accurate training room hours will be made available a month at a time. The athletic training room will open 8 hours prior to the end of a scheduled day ie. Volleyball game 9pm will allow training room to open at 1pm, for that day. The assistant athletic trainer will cover on the weekday chosen by the head AT,C (fall Tuesdays 11-7), and/or where other competitions overlap. In-season as described by CCCATA SEASON OF SPORT The season of sport is defined as starting with the CCCAA practice/scrimmage may begin date and ends with the CCCAA conference competition ends date, except for participants in CCCAA approved postconference competition.

8 8 Physical Policy: (Revised March 19, 2007) NCAA Bylaw Mandatory Medical Examination Effective Date: May 01, 2007 (Division I); August 01, 2007 (Division II, Division III) Prior to participation in any practice, competition or out-of-season conditioning activities (or, in Division I, permissible voluntary summer conditioning in basketball and football or voluntary individual workouts pursuant to the safety exception), student-athletes who are beginning their initial season of eligibility shall be required to undergo a medical examination or evaluation administered or supervised by a physician (e.g., family physician, team physician). The examination or evaluation must be administered within six months prior to participation in any practice, competition or out-of-season conditioning activities. In following years, an updated history of the student-athlete's medical condition shall be administered by an institutional medical staff member (e.g., sports medicine staff, team physician) to determine if additional examinations (e.g., physical, cardiovascular, neurological) are required. The updated history must be administered within six months prior to the student-athlete's participation in any practice, competition or out-of-season conditioning activities for the applicable academic year. Solano College has adopted the NCAA physical policy All incoming athletes must supply Sports Medicine proof of a recent athletic or well care physical(physician must be a Medical Doctor, no lab work is required). These may be on HMO form, physician letterhead, prescription pad, or military format. It is recommended that a recent (last 6 months), physical is obtained prior to attending Solano College. It is recommended that the athletes personal physician perform the physical, for continuity of treatment, and to reflect on the entire medical history of athlete. Solano College medical forms must be filled out by each athlete prior to first competition. Athletes may not practice until physical forms are cleared by Solano Sports Medicine, and competition is not allowed until all medical forms are completed. Each physical will be valid for two years of competition, unless medical conditions arise after initial physical. These situations will require Physician release and updated physical. Medical forms will be updated, and history renewed each year for returning players, this will ensure medical conditions have not changed. All medical forms are available on the Solano Sports Medicine website, lobby, and staff workroom.

9 Pre-participation Screening Exam (PPE) 9 A. The student athlete will complete the PPE prior to any practices or any intercollegiate competitions. B. Student athletes shall complete a thorough pre-participation examination. This screening shall be performed by a licensed physician or other qualified medical personnel who are under the supervision of a licensed medical physician. The PPE shall include: Medical examination Orthopedic examination Review of history/paperwork screen C. The student athlete health PPE form should provide a medical history designed to detect conditions that will determine an athlete s fitness to engage in sports. In no way is the review of history to be misconstrued as a complete health physical examination PPE. (Bylaw moved from Bylaw with revision. Adopted & effective October 17, Coaches are responsible for following the physical guidelines for all out-of season contests, and utilize the proper paperwork. Game Coverage: CCCAA states.game coverage by the medical staff will be decided by the Head Athletic Trainer. In the case of multiple home events the level of risk of the contest will determine the coverage, although the AT,C will be available for any injury that may occur. All home contests at Solano College will be covered by Solano College Sports Medicine. Coverage depends on, the daily competition schedule, and may be covered by student athletic interns (in communication with AT,C on site, when multiple contests are on site). Coverage includes both teams (visitors and home) and includes first aid, medical emergencies, and athletic injuries and conditions. Away game coverage: All teams must supply a departure schedule for all away games. Solano Sports Medicine will supply treatment for away contests that are OUTSIDE of the daily hours, only when requested by coaches. These early of late departures may affect the daily hours of the Sports Medicine Center. It is the Head Coaches responsibility to travel with a Solano injury kit (except football). Kits include necessary tape and medical supplies, emergency cards for each player, insurance forms, and contact information for away ATC s.

10 Coaches are responsible for content and the return of kit after every away contest. Kits will be brought to sports medicine for re-stocking. Lost kits cost the program responsible $200, before next away contest. Solano players needing tape at away contests should be instructed to bring the SCC kit to the AT,C covering the event. Practice coverage will be staffed by student Interns, only if the training room has enough staff for the day. These will be assigned by the Head ATC, and will be assessed by the level of risk (ex. football highest risk). Students will be in direct contact with the AT,C. Coaches should remember, these will be assigned only when there is a large number of students available, and coaches should NEVER rely on students to attend practices. This is why all taping, treatment, stretching etc., should be performed in the Sports Medicine Center, prior to practice. AT,C s will only attend practices to assist student interns with injuries or questions, that may arise. In the event of an emergency call AT,C directly via cell phone. Non Traditional Season coverage: Games hosted at Solano College must be pre approved by Sports medicine. Emergency response and physical screening will be made available, when staffing is available. Concussion Policy: The Solano College Concussion policy is in compliance with the CCCAA Concussion Policy. Athletes will be educated prior to their athletic season on Concussions, and how to Report a Concussions. All Athletes will sign a waiver stating they understand the risk of concussions and they will report all head injuries to Solano College Sports medicine immediately. The treatment policy will include a daily concussion evaluation with Solano Sports Medicine, and a gradual return to play policy. Concussion symptoms must be resolved for a minimum of 24 hours prior to any return to play protocol. Each concussion will be treated using Rest as the primary requirement. Coaches will receive annual concussion training provided by Solano Sports medicine, and all 10

11 coaches will be responsible to report any head injuries, or possible concussions immediately, to Solano College Sports Medicine. Athletes will be sent home with a Concussion guidelines sheet to inform parents and roommates of home care for concussions. Supplies and Equipment are available for all in-season teams. For equality of all teams, the use of supplies will be monitored to ensure that all programs have access. Such supplies include electrode pads, ice bags, flexi wrap, first aid, tape, wraps, medications, braces, padding etc. Teams will be notified prior to their share of tape running low. Coaches may discuss a taping policy (ie. Red shirts) for their team, which can be implemented by Sports Medicine. Out of season coaches that would like supplies may discuss a cost necessary and purchase supplies as needed. Student Interns role is determined by each student volunteer. These students may choose teams to work with, or may offer to work training room hours only. If a student chooses a team, a meeting will be set up with the teams coach to discuss the role that the student is available to fill. This may include: * covering team treatment sessions *home game coverage *departure coverage * away game travel. This will depend on the students team interaction, and availability. A student will be removed upon any concerns from Head Athletic Trainer and/or head coach. 11

12 Coaches should NOT request student interns to perform any task that is not in their job description. This includes errands, stats, charts, scoring, or injury treatment and massage of any Non Athlete (Including coaches). This is NATA policy. Student Interns were developed to allow for hands on experience for Sports Medicine students. This luxury is NOT available at most community colleges, and is NOT for the benefit of coaches. These students report to the Head Athletic trainer who will monitor their progress, review their schedule, and communicate with coaches on their team interaction. Coaches are expected to treat interns with respect, and to make sure players treat the entire Sports Medicine Staff with respect.
